Resident Research

In addition to authoring medical journal articles, abstracts, textbook chapters and special reports, in the past year alone Floating Hospital faculty, fellows and residents have been invited to present at more than 180 medical meetings, symposia and grand rounds.

Our faculty members serve as editors, reviewers and editorial board members of many medical publications— extending the reach and visibility of the tremendous expertise that resides here to a truly global medical community.

Our research faculty personally mentor our residents in their scholarly projects and participate in the noon conference series. The Floating Hospital Research Series occurs once a month where faculty and residents present their research so that the community is aware of ongoing projects occurring here.

Every pediatric resident at Floating Hospital for Children is required to participate in a scholarly project by the end of their residency training period. Our hope is that through this project residents participate in the creative process of scientific discovery and exploration. The scholarly activity may include clinical research, basic science research, medical education research, systematic reviews or case reports. The residents are mentored through the entire process by a faculty member of their choice. The ultimate goal is for residents to present and disseminate their work at an institutional, local or national level.
